did a lot of camping , fishing , and exploring at Fordyce lake In the 80s and 90s . So I guess the snow has melted? lots of times could not get there till late july . The PG&E would shut down the water flow so we could ford the creak to do the Sierra Trek Jeep Run into Meadow Lake . All the Venders would be there with their goods. Course they came in on the Forestry road with the Motorhomes and semi's . It lasted all week . Kinda the Sturgis of jeeps . Think I know the jeep Road through the meadow your talking about . Easier in a jeep . Food and girls are easy to carry in a jeep
Don't forget the otherside of 80 at Guerlycreek Camp ground . was free camping . if not other places to camp . lots of roads leading to waterfalls etc . Robbs resort for food.
